Golden hour; a term frequently passed around by photographers and a phrase often not understood by many. You know that feeling when the sun starts to set and every part of our Earth starts to "glow"? The sky becomes vibrant hues of oranges, purples, pinks, and yellows. The trees emit a gorgeous brilliance of green and orange. This is golden hour. A time of the day when nature comes alive. The lighting is creamy and the hues are yummy.
My favorite time to shoot is about 45 minutes before sunset. With the summer approaching, we will begin to see more and more beautiful sunsets. With every golden hour session, I think to myself "wow, THIS is my job". To be one with nature and photograph sweet families embracing one another. I had the opportunity to meet up with The S Family during a golden hour session. With their sweet, spunky and ADORABLE little boy and their new puppy, Luna, I knew I was in for a special treat.
The best sessions are those that are not forced. One overused word when taking photos is "cheese". The most natural and genuine smiles come after telling the child a silly joke or making a silly noise. During this session, we talked about a horse being his swim teacher, imagined that his puppy Luna could talk, and showed off our whisper voices then our LOUD whisper voices. How fun! Not only for the kiddo but for me as well! In these photos, you will see silly faces, natural giggles and smiles, and love radiating through mom and dad.
I always encourages each family to bring special items with them that are special to the family or child. Whether it be a quilt that Meemaw made or a special teddy that helps the child feel secure. In this session, The S Family, brought their sweet new puppy, Luna! Let me tell you, she was MADE for the camera. It seemed as if she was actually posing in each set. The relationship between this little boy and his pup is special. They play rough with each other but also give sweet lap snuggles.
Thank you to The S Family for entrusting me as their photographer to capture these precious and timeless photos. Photography is a special part of our culture today; to preserve those times that seem to be passing us by.
